Why is it that SO MANY people believe that a female dog having one litter is OK? or the dogs right? I can't believe how many times I have heard "I just wanted her to have one litter." Why? Give me a valid reason why.

A valid reason isn't because I wanted a puppy... if you want a puppy go to or and FIND ONE THAT ALREADY NEEDS A HOME. There are 7 million dogs DIEING every year.

A valid reason isn't because you wanted the dog to have the experience... WHAT? A dog has litter of puppies and then forgets as soon as the puppies are living in a different home. Dogs don't have experiences like people do. They don't have resumes. 10,000 Human babies are born in the US every day. 70,000 cats and dogs are born in the US everyday. Do the math!

A valid reason isn't because it is good for them or makes them a better dog. The opposite is actually true and I have proven it to myself time and time and time again. Whenever I spay / neuter puppies (under 6 months) they always have the best personalities. NEVER EVER have issues with them... Also, it has been proven by vets that dogs that are not fixed die of cancer more frequently then dogs that are fixed.

Here are some more statistics:

Males neutered at a young age are far less likely to develop dominance or aggression-related behavior problems, including possession and food guarding, territory marking (lifting his leg on everything in sight), aggression toward other dogs, and "humping" inappropriate objects.

Altered animals are generally more docile and easier to train

In the span of six years, an unspayed dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies!

evidence shows that females spayed before their first heat are typically healthier.

Spaying or neutering does not affect a dog's natural instinct to protect home and family.

Pets don't have any concept of sexual identity or ego. Neutering will not change a pet's basic personality. He doesn't suffer any kind of emotional reaction or identity crisis when neutered.

I hear stuff like this all the time but a women who has worked for my Dad FOREVER said I always had my females have on litter before I got them fixed. I always GAVE THEM A WAY FREE TO GOOD HOMES.

I seriously lost it.

Great info you have here. If I had a quarter for every time Ive heard a new dog owner they say theyre going to breed the dog just once, usually for the money, I would be rich. This is so frustrating. Thanks for making these very valid and important points.
